MTU to power Maritimo

Select Maritimo models will be powered by MTU from 2022.

15 March 2022


MTU will be the official high horsepower engine option for new Maritimo vessels, with select future models to follow.

The Rolls-Royce Power Systems’ MTU engine will be the sole option for all engines from 1,200 mhp to 1625 mhp.

Represented locally by Penske Australia & New Zealand, various MTU engine options, with ZF gearboxes, MTU control systems, MTU joystick and position hold options will be available in M75 Flybridge, S75 Sedan, and M600 and S600 Offshore models.

“The decision was very easy for us, as our companies share very similar values in the products we manufacture,” says Phil Candler, Maritimo’s General Manager.

“They are of extremely high quality, highly functional & reliable and are supported with incredible customer care and service.”

Maritimo’s MTU engine offers owners a purpose-built marine power unit, with real time back-to-base monitoring service around the globe, with the ability to operate at 100 percent load.


“MTU offers significant advantages when its efficiency and maintenance costs are factored in over and above the initial purchase,” says Candler.

“There is further alignment of the two companies’ core focus in the way Maritimo and MTU both strive to create engineering with built in simplicity, creating greater ease of operation and more pleasurable ownership experience.”

Engine packages will be provided through Penske Australia & New Zealand with 16 branches supported by remote field service locations that provide around the clock connectivity.

The first MTU-powered Maritimos will hit the water in late 2022.
